7:02 pm
sometime after the new president i lot of thought for a man this would be sworn in for a man this played a crucial role in ever more dollars being able to live for livia after he resigned after the protests in that country and then headed to mexico and that's one of the reasons why he's coming here he arrived and requested officially political asylum but the flooring minister here for you has been explaining why he's later wrong going to be passed in what is known as a refugee status what the foreign minister yuriy saying is that they're requesting given what alice for example not to give political declarations that man the among other things that the reason why he's going to be here as a refugees because there's a normative in order to do that in spite of this argentina considers for example the interim administration a lot of jenene aeneas in bolivia illegitimate they believe that a coup took place that forced out it will morales out of office and president to albertus and and this is vice president cristina another reason that this is an
7:03 pm
argentine or. well that's correct i mean cristina fernandez de kirchner was president of argentina while she was in office the relationship between argentina and bolivia was a very very close one and that's why it will not i this is coming here there's also a very large bolivian community here in in argentina he has lots of support in this country and it's also in a way shed some light of what plans what alice has for the future right now the current administration interim administration in bolivia is preparing for elections in the near future probably april or may they're selecting the members of the electro tribute after the one that was in place was accused of committing fraud among many other things that it is expected that it will what else could be the campaign manager of the movement towards socialism party that's his party in bolivia so he's going to be participating actively in what happens in bolivia in

7:05 pm
suggested heidi. well fireworks are starting off this debate this morning elizabeth with representative jim jordan a republican introducing the 1st amendment which would kill article one abuse of power the article of impeachment would kill it all together now that's what the members are now discussing this is a meeting that could go on for many many hours as republicans though they hold the minority on this panel they do have the ability to slow things down dropped dramatically by introducing amendment upon amendment of course in the end their efforts will not be successful because democrats have the numbers to push forward these articles of impeachment of their liking and that vote is it's back to before the end of the day which would then set up for next week when these articles which are abuse of power and obstruction of congress then make their way on to the full house floor and democrats who of course have the majority there as well are likely
7:06 pm
to vote and approve on those articles of impeachment making donald trump only the 3rd u.s. president ever to be officially impeached by congress of course overall. reality here is the once this impeachment reaches the senate which is the step that will unfold in the new year because that chambers is controlled by trump's own party the republicans all signs are they will hold a trial quickly and then move to acquit the president and what we're seeing though is that trump is getting ahead of today's hearings i just counted his tweets in the last 3 hours there are more than 80. reach waiting. media coverage that has been beneficial to him and starting off this morning with his own defense saying that there was no crime and that this impeachment is a sham that seems quite high even by his standards heidi thank you very much for

7:18 pm
the hague closely. these are the people who endured those horrendous atrocities at the hands of me and mars military these are the people who are being referred to when it comes to the case at the international court of justice now many of them are aware of the hearing some of them have been able to get information on their mobile phones others don't know about it all some of the people we've been speaking to think that this could potentially be a 1st step into being able to go back home but many people also tell you that they don't understand the real legalities the details of what is happening there. that you will get justice since the whole world has now put them on trial i hope our situation will change as a result of that i hope the opportunity to hold peacefully people here been calling for justice for a very long time it's been almost 2 and a half years since that offensive in august of 2017 was so hundreds of thousands of
7:19 pm
people flee here in the space of just a couple of weeks but these people also want to go home and many people will tell you that the ruling of the international court of justice and that may take time will probably not be able to give that to them there's a lot of challenges ahead when it comes to seeing how they'll be able to go back home we've just been speaking to the head of the u.n. refugee agency here in bangladesh and he said even if repatriation started tomorrow would it would take an incredibly long time until you process this amount of people this is a city of refugees equivalent to the population of some of the world cities but each of them has a story of her own does horrors tragedy and trauma. to children our congress has begun a debate which could lead to the impeachment of the country's president opposition m.p. says about a failed to prevent human rights violations by the army and police at least 26 people have been killed thousands injured in a crackdown on protesters demonstrations began in october of
7:20 pm
a socialist. quality votes by hold and 2 weeks of rioting well let's bring in our latin america and attendants union she's joining us my from the capital santiago good to see you see yes i'm so the voltage expected to take place any minute now. hi there well yes it does we actually had expected it to already have happened but you know in these cases the very often the congressmen want to speak everyone wants to express the reason why they're going to or explain why they're going to vote one way or the other the political parties of the opposition that are more in the center that you could have expected to vote in favor perhaps of the president have given their congressmen free rein to vote according to their conscience so there's really no indication right now as to which way it will go and the president has been increasing unlucky in this case 1st of all yesterday his cousin the former interior minister was found guilty by the senate of having of responsibility for
7:21 pm
having allowed gross human rights violations to take place when a state of emergency had been declared here in chile right at the beginning of this crisis and then on human rights day which was on tuesday the president announced a whole series of measures which he said would defend human rights here ahead of what's happening right now and instead that very evening tool protesters were so badly injured by riot police that their lives are hanging in the balance at this moment so things are not looking very good for the president right now is that how likely is he to be impeachments here if you can say. well here it is the real question now is whether the congress will approve the impeachment request then just as happens in the united states the whole thing goes to the senate and there the president will be in a much better position because he his parties and some of the more conservative members of the opposition are likely to vote not to impeach the president many people argue that that's just going to make
7:22 pm
a very bad situation worse it's going to be the power vacuum in this country and that this president seats have to be if you like take it to the fire so that he will make the changes necessary not another president thank you does the national merit a tendency in human life in santiago thank you. now to new day with the army is searching for what it calls several 100 heavily armed terrorists who killed at least 70 soldiers well they camp near the western border with mali sustained hours of heavy gunfire late on tuesday there's been no claim of responsibility but fighters linked to al qaida are increasingly active in the remarked nor this region they detest like you really deputy the detachment in the in not has military post near the border with mali was attacked by heavily armed terrorists estimated at several 100 there followed a combat of rare violence combining artillery fire and the use of kamikaze vehicles by the enemy on our position for 3 hours a search in pursuit has been launched in the footsteps of terrorists fleeing from
7:23 pm
our borders. what address is following the story from mali and he says frequent cross border fighting with groups is an issue for both countries. and i just has always been in the crosshairs of the extremist groups operating along the border but by far this is the biggest in terms of casualty numbers according to sources the attackers numbering in the hundreds at the army post with suicide bombers as well as mortars and by the way you notice has been largely vacated since the last major attacks last year in the area and we've also seen across the region in this hell the uptick of violence carried out by al qaida into sliming state in the west african province and all the fighters in the region and the targets mainly all well military bases that were overrun and equipment being seized now i look to
7:24 pm
people are warning especially security analysts are warning that we probably will see more violence in the coming months or weeks as the groups there want to establish a full court meanwhile across the region there is anger and concerns about the rule of multinational forces in the region especially the french presence here in mali that is particularly the feeling that the french are not doing enough to cut the violence and a meeting with the g. 5 leaders of 5 civilian countries with their french president which was supposed to start next week has now been shifted until early 2020 but a lot of people in the region i really concerned about why are all these is leading to. special protective gear will try to recover the bodies of those killed in a volcanic eruption using it and despite warnings that another one is imminent police say

7:29 pm
a lot of questionable. infrastructure projects in other areas so that's the part where there is space to build what you actually need but. stop building just because you want to create demand for more steel and cement and the. construction work china has argued for years that it shouldn't be criticised for using coal to power it's remarkable transformation into the world's 2nd largest economy i think china and. at that time some other developing countries believe that this is our right to develop because they recognize that yes it's our rights to develop but on the other hand it's also about our rights for you know people's right to brave healthy air the skies above beijing may be clear more often but why china's new middle class demands new homes chinese
